Who needs take out when you can easily make healthier, Gluten Free Chinese at home? My daughter has Celiac Disease so we can not eat out at most restaurants and she loves Chinese food.

To make this gluten free I use Tamari instead of soy sauce, and get the other sauces at a specialty food store.

When I make this...

We love this recipe! I actually "fry" my corn tortillas one at a time, dip into the enchilada sauce, fill, roll, and place in the baking dish. That way the tortillas don't get cold or soggy from other sitting on top. If your tortillas are soggy or falling apart, you need to "fry" them longer! Being from southern Cali, you have to use corn. You never...

If you have Celiac Disease (or are gluten intollerant) as well as lactose intollerant like my daughter this pie filling is perfect! I couldnt use the crust of course but the filling is super yummy. I plalced it over vegan oreo cookies that were crushed and mushed with vegan butter (1/4 cup). I didn't use the rum, but wow. So good. My daughter was...

This recipe is amazing! I am allergic to mushrooms, so I leave those out. I have made this several times and its always a hit with the family. Sometimes I deglaze the braiser with a little white win, then chicken stock to make a sauce for the chicken. "

This was a super delicious! I actually cooked the asparagus longer than a minute (that is not enough time - but still left it with some bite) and added 1/2 cup of parmesan to the cream sauce. At the end I sprinkled on another 1/2 cup and freshly ground pepper. My daughter (Aspergers with some food sensory issues) had 2 helpings! Looking forward to"

If I could give this soup 100 stars I would. My husband, daughter, and I loved this soup. It is a hearty soup that warms you up and fills your belly. Like others I did not use beer and just added an extra cup of chicken stock. I also added 2 extra carrots and an additional 1/2 of a celery stalk. And I also added the bacon grease to the dutch oven...

Delicious! My aunt made this last year for Thanksgiving and again this year and we were all so glad she did. She printed out the recipe for me and I will be making it this week to go with the black bean tostadas I am making. I will be adding in some roasted green chili's to give it a bit of a kick. But honestly it is perfect just the way it is.""

Apr 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I have made many FN recipes and have been cooking since I was a kid. This recipe did not turn out like the picture at all. I love artichokes and peas and the sauce was very unpleasant. I let the sauce cool down a bit before adding the lemon zest and juice and it still curdled on me. My sauce also did not thicken up like it has in the picture above....

Wow! This recipe was awesome. My husband spent 5 years in Germany when his dad was stationed on a now closed AFB and grew up enjoying wonderful Germany meals. He was so excited when I decided to give this a try. He was so pleased as was our daughter. The house smelled so good when it was cooking.

The only thing I changed right...

I couldn't wait to try this recipe and it did not disappoint! I actually had to add more than 1 cup of water so I poured in a little extra beer.

Next time I am going to add carrots (my husband suggested that), 1/4 the potatoes, add fewer onions since I am the only one who eats them, and add a little more mustard to counter act...
